Jean Monnet Chairs
The objective of the Jean Monnet Chair on EU Environmental Law is to improve participants’ competences in European legal studies, in both internal and external dimensions, related to sustainable, fair, and resilient environmental governance. Specifically, it promotes teaching, seminars, and research in areas relevant to the development of EU environmental law.
The purpose of this chair is to promote the teaching, research, and dissemination of European private law, at the University of Barcelona and other universities, in face-to-face classes as well as through multimedia resources. Essentially, it aims to contribute to the evaluation of issues related to the evolution of European private law, and to improve understanding of the Acquis communautaire and its impact on national rights. The final objective is to demonstrate the importance of private law to achieving a European Single Market and improving the rights of citizens.
The UNESCO Chair in Bioethics at the University of Barcelona, founded in 2007, frames its work on the respect and promotion of human rights and advocates a conception of multidisciplinary, flexible and secular bioethics. It is based on the experience gained by the OBD in the fields of research and training, while promotes the knowledge transfer to other countries through networking. It is part of the group of nine UNESCO Chairs in Bioethics established around the world, being the only one in the Spanish state in this field. It is also part of the UNITWIN Network of UNESCO Chairs world and the Catalan Group of UNESCO Chairs.
